Turley Old Vines Zinfandel 2001
Wine EnthusiastRich and plush on the nose, with hints of chocolate, plum and spice. It fans out on the palate to reveal a complex web of spicy black cherry, cola, coffee, blackberry, anise and chocolate flavors, all couched in supple, smooth tannins and finishing long on the palate.
Wine AdvocateThe generic offering of 2001 Zinfandel Old Vines (a blend of many different components) exhibits a dark plum/ruby/purple color as well as sweet, ripe, berry fruit, but it lacks the complexity and generosity found in the other cuvees. Nevertheless, it is a lavishly fruity Zinfandel to drink over the next 2-3 years.
